Early American Bookbindings From the Collection of Michael Papantonio X H E FOLLOWING LIST of books, noted only in the briefest form, is intended to inform the inquirer of the books in American bindings that make up the gifts and bequest from Michael Papantonio to the Society. They form one basis of the AAS collections of American bindings. In addition to these books, Mr. Papantonio gave to the Society nearly two hundred other volumes which he had culled from his bindings collection. Many, if not all of them, have been added to the general collections of AAS. Michael Papantonio was a bookman of acute sensibilities and was possessed of a natural affinity for the bibliographically significant. He honed those abilities through diligent study, hard work, and years of experience. His collection of books in interesting or beautiful American bindings was developed over a number of years as a divertissement. In 1973 he began to give to the Society selected examples from the collection. At his death all but a half dozen of the books in American bindings shelved at his 48th Street apartment in New York, as well as those volumes that he had culled from his collection located in Princeton, came to the Society. Those few that did not join his collection in Worcester included the Confession of Faith of the Boston Synod bound by Ratcliffe, a copy of The Columbiad bound exuberantly by William Swaim, and a presentation copy from the Congress to George Washington of the Acts of Congress, 1790. Following his death in 1978, Mr. Papantonio's friends established an endowment, the income from which is

used to maintain, the collection in good order and make suitable additions to it. Many of the binders of the volumes in the collection have not yet been identified. Thus, it seemed that the most useful arrangement ofthe list would be in a geographical (by city) and chronological order, a scheme that would lead the inquirer to the probable j^lace and approximate date ofthe binding. We are aware, of course, that one cannot assume that data for publication and binding will be parallel. In some cases, we have positive e\ idence that the binding was executed in places other than that of publication, and Willman Spawn warns us that this arrangement may be misleading. Nevertheless, until more information becomes available, it is likely that in many cases a reasonable guide to the bindings might be found through the city and date ofthe origin ofthe book in question. Reference has; been made to numbered entries in the catalogue ofthe exhibition of a selection of books from Mr. Papantonio's collection.
